This Jazz and Blues standard, originally composed by Harold Arlen in 1932, features Duke Ellington's notes for passages to be played by his band members Harry Carney (baritone saxophone), Lawrence Brown (trombone), and Cooty Williams (trumpet). Charles "Cootie" Williams spelled his nickname variously as "Cooty" and "Cootie." This chart is written on both the front and back of one piece of score paper. Most of Duke Ellington's scores are housed in the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C., but here's an opportunity for an Ellington aficionado to win an original chart, one of the last to be offered to the public. Small tear on left side with mild wear on edges and fold creases, overall VG-EX.
